Life Isn’t Perfect. Be the best person you can be.

Episode #194: Nobody is perfect. Everyone’s life journey is different. So be gentle on yourself when stuttering happens or when you miss out on an opportunity to advocate or educate. These are a few of the 5 stuttering survival tips Elaine Robin, part time Stutter Social host, gives on this episode. We also chat about the benefits of facing your fears, positive self-talk, and talking to others who stutter.

This is part 6 in a series where I ask each of the Stutter Social hosts to share their stuttering survival and resilience tips:

Part 1 – The phone, dating, jobs, small talk

Part 2 – Show your stutter who’s boss

Part 3 – Give yourself permission not to be perfect every day

Part 4 – Focusing on the positive stuttering experiences

Part 5 – Don’t beat yourself up if you have a stuttery day
